    Also the truck is legit. Last time it was registered and on the road was in 2006 registered to me Steven Thomilson at my old address 1202 Pequeno Lane
    Fenton Missouri
    63026. Have your brother in law look it up buddy. And Fenton is in Saint Louis County. The truck is all original paint and body. I’ve got no secrets.

    I might someday get another 1981 Silverado once I move. I love the stock ride with a hopped up 4 barrel drivetrain. There’s nothing like it. In the meantime I just hope we can all cool it and get along as friends on this forum. I’m here to learn and help others that’s all.

    Definitely an interesting story. I be damned if some asshole would move into my neighborhood and run me off.

    With the epa they don’t make paint like that anymore. Original paint and body no rust I believe fully justifies my old $10k asking price. And with the boom on trucks and dumb baby boomers market wise i beloved the asking price. You can’t duplicate the paint the epa screwed that.

    I’m sorry I left that epa paint thing out but you guys should have figured that out on your own. It’s a no brainer.

    Not meant to be offensive. Figured you wouldn’t be.
    And not a dig, but more an observation in that a pristine, clean body, if it doesn’t need paint is worth much more…to someone who cares about the paint. If you don’t then, no, it’s just some sheet metal that’s not rusty.
    Think bout it this way. Guy has a truck that’s rusted and paint is bad and wants to restore it. Pays 1000 for a straight bed , few hundo more for misc sheetmetal. Spends 100 hours doing bodywork and patch panels and 2 grand for a cheapo paint job when he’s done. $3k bolt n go sounds pretty good.
    $3k sounds like a lot of money as well to someone who’s just trying to get back n forth to work and has their truck parked out under a tree getting crapped on by birds and sap and rain…
    All depends what someone wants out of the deal.

    Roflmao!
    So you are full of shit…lol.
    Or I suppose you’ll say that the chitty black paint job that I identified from a photo on my iPhone months ago is actually custom factory over that copper colored cab floor and door…
    Buddy I think your “neighbor” is “you.” Sorry man….”

    Consider the source…not even enough functioning grey matter to not post a pic busting his original paint claim!

    I agree, he, is the neighbor he described. If you look closer, the truck was originally an Illinois truck, and I'll say it again, he's full of crap.
